Opening Song: The Apostles' Creed
Big Idea: Keep Bringing God's Light to the World
Story: The Transfiguration | Spark Story Bible, pg. 358
Lesson Video 1: Moses on the Mountain
Lesson Video 2: Jesus on the Mountain
Ask: In both stories, what happened on the mountain? (ANSWER: They met with God). If you were to climb up a mountain and God appeared, what would you do?
Say: After Moses was on the mountain, the Bible says his face shined with light. When Jesus was on the mountain, His whole body shined with light. God's light is also inside of each of us.
Action for the Kids - Say: The world can sometimes be a dark place, full of hate and pain. But we can bring God's light and love into the world. Let's think of some ways we can share God's light this week...
